I/O error deleting file, file permissions represented as ?????????
I couldn't view the contents of a folder on the Windows data partition of my Ubuntu machine. The GUI reported the folder as empty. I opened a terminal (console) and navigated to the offending folder and found all my files and folders as well as what seems to be a corrupted file. The files permissions, ownership, size and access date are all represented by question marks. (screen output follows)
-rw------- 2 phil phil 24427 Nov 9 09:51 Variety-order.odt
-????????? ? ? ? ? ? Variety-order.txt
-rw------- 1 phil phil 818 Nov 13 10:26 Variety-order.txt~
when I tried to remove the file even with the -f flag, I got the following error:
rm: cannot remove `Variety-order.txt': Input/output error
Anyone have any ideas how I can get rid of this file or otherwise resolve this issue?
IMHO if you have problems that relate to microsoft products you best try and fix them using the tools microsoft provides.
I didn't realizee the problem was on the windows side. Probably a file locking error. I'm in Ubuntu 90% of the time but need to access my files from both sides so I created a data partition (ntfs volume).
I was able to log into widows and delete the offending file; all is visible once again.
